  1. That model is not a pro model - pro ones are much faster according to the reviews. It might be fine of course with RX100 files. My 2017 one has no problem with 45MP images which are a lot bigger than the RX100 files. It is a remarkable piece of technology. You can get deals from the mobile phone companies (eg O2) if buying the cellular version and pay monthly. Worth checking out if you are serious about it.
  2. A few years ago I decided it wasn't worth it. Lately the aircraft got better, the price went down, and I really wanted to try a flying camera regardless of the returns. I also learned that here in the US there is a concerted effort by the FAA to integrate sUAV(drones) into the National Airspace (this is good). Got my certificate last Spring and fly a M2P. The camera is good enough for Alamy (same as RX100?), but not like my 6D. BTW, drone manufacturer DJI bought Hasselblad, hence the name on the camera. Maybe Hasselblad engineers worked on it, but it's nothing special. Expect files just like from Sony RX100 (altho my M2P has stronger vignetting). There is a very active Mavic forum (mavicpilots) with many members from the UK (+worldwide). I read lots before taking the test, and I now spend many more hours reading than flying. Despite the difficulties (not many in US), there is nothing like it. I love being part of the world of aviation, even in a small way.
  3. 👍 That’s what I’ve done. It’s just a matter of saving up for it specifically, and that’s what I’ve done in the past. That’s how I get a new camera or lens, too. I’ve actually sold off stuff, or had a garage sale to get it. So far, I’ve found if it’s something I want bad enough, I find a way. I once sold off bits and pieces of gold and silver jewelry...pieces that were slightly broken or I never wore anymore. Just sold them by the ounces at a precious metals place. My daughter always accuses me of selling off her inheritance. I’ll be having a garage sale this spring...I might see a new Fuji X-T4 or a new RX100 late series like the one Ed has out of the sale. I have probably 4 or 5 cameras to sell also, besides some tripods and lenses. And an upright freezer! This will be 2 years post moving sale when I now know what I have and what I actually need for this house since I’m alone now. Betty
  4. Those Sony cameras look great, and i have had a look at Ed Rooney's folio and his images taken with these compact versatile cameras are impressive...I can see along with others here that they can be your main camera or go to for ease of use and portability.I am still using a Canon full frame 5D3 and 5 lenses...heavy kit i know but i like the quality.I have thought of changing over to the Fuji TX3 to shed some weight or maybe a Sony RX100 V and Sony RX100 V1... Then i look at the new Canon RF L lenses for their mirrorless system and want them..Well i like great gear and i have great gear lol so i will resist changing over and spending money i don't have...I will most likely buy a Canon 5D4 for the extra dynamic range in the future and stick with what i have, but when i am over the heavy gear then i will look at these more compact alternatives..Until then like Chuck i will keep doing my push ups and weight exercises for my arms....and envy you people with the compact gear 😀
  5. I have similar experience. Way more downloads, incl. some very decent prices, with Rx100 than Canon full frame. My theory is it is combination of availability and creativity. Rx100 is in your pocket, always there, carried effortlessly while heavier and bulkier SLR takes bit of effort, mental and otherwise, to lug around. Then Rx is small, you can push it through the fence, easier to capture unusual angle, etc -----> creativity.
  6. I use a 50 megapixel Canon the most, but I also carry a small Sony RX100 version 1 on my belt for the unexpected, or for very very long walks. I have had a lot of stock sales success with my Sony, however I am thinking of replacing the Sony with a Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II. The Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II is only very slightly bigger than the Sony, but has specs more to my liking. The Sony RX100 series are all great cameras, but consider the Canon PowerShot G5 X Mark II before you buy. https://www.dpreview.com/reviews/canon-powershot-g5-x-mark-ii-review
  7. I'm semi-sure that I've posted somewhere that I'm very pleased with handholding my RX100/6 in the Twilight Scene mode. I cannot tell the difference between the results with using that setting and the in-camera jpegs it produces from my usual A (aperture preference) setting and RAW. Rick, you don't have the Gulf Steam in Calgary. We do here. Until a major change in the path of those waters from the tropics happens, this part of the world does not get very cold or very hot. You be careful hanging out of those flying machines! In Vietnam in a Huey with the doors open at 10,000 feet was the only place to get a cooling breeze. Edo
  8. Many swear by the Sony RX100 series, truly pocketable, 1" sensor but very good quality, at least one contributor only uses the RX100. For me I think I would drop it though, but that's a reflection on me rather than the camera.
  9. Same here, and the two cameras that I might buy in the future will still be covered by it, even the Sony RX100 up to version 5 I see, not the 5A though. If that wasn't true then I would subscribe, I would find it hard to do without it.
  10. RF exclusive to Alamy personal use calculator price. Taken with my small, always on me, Sony RX100. I have taken this shot with a higher resolution, much heavier, much bigger, more expensive, more professional looking camera, but this is the one that sold. There is a lesson somewhere in there.
  11. I am going to carry out a shoot indoors just using available lighting (no flash) and would like some advice from other users of RX100's who have done this already. What settings give you the best results handheld to produce a workable RAW file? Do you use M,S,A,P, or gold or green camera setting? Thank you in advance for any replies. Allan
  12. I'm hoping to travel to Europe in the later half of this year and am toying with whether I should get one of the RX100s, or instead get the 24-105mm for my Sony or the similar zoom for my Olympus M4/3, since I find using a variety of primes when I travel means I sometimes miss the shots I want and with the Sony, many of my primes are actually rather large. I'm so glad I went with mirrorless and love using primes normally, and love the low light capability of the Sony, but wonder if adding a large zoom while walking all day long will outweigh the benefit of having a light camera. I've got the original OMD E-1. Are the newer models/Panasonic equivalents appreciably better in low light? Having a D700 and now the Sony a7rii have really spoiled me for nighttime shooting with no noise. Any thoughts from those of you with m4/3rds cameras? Or does getting an RX100 and keeping a small prime on the Sony make more sense? I'm not likely to use a large zoom at night anyway, I guess as holding a large lens still combined with a slower f/stop isn't a great combo for these old hands. Any thoughts? If you opt for the Panasonic, I'd be interested to hear more. Thanks.
  13. When I first obtained the RX100 mk1 I got the Feniac, (may have the spelling wrong), grip from the states. Don't think it is available now. When I purchased the Mk III I transferred it to that camera. Still have the Mk1 but hardly use it now. Sits in the car for emergencies. Allan
  14. Mark, I had a RX100/3 for a long time, the first model with a viewfinder. The only problem with it was the autofocus was slow and hit and miss. Autofocus is much better on the later models. For what I do now, in retirement, nothing compares with these little Sonys. 😎
  15. I've got the Sony RX100 Mk III and love it. I prefer the menu system on the Canon G5 X Mk II but its lens just isn't as good in the corners at wide angle setting (although it does offer a longer zoom range and wider aperture). Sony's low light "wizardry" is also superb. Mark
  16. Sorry I actually meant the choice is between the RX100 and GX9, thanks for pointing out my error
  17. I use a D3x for commercial use but always carry when not working a RX100/VA. As others have said its one of the go for cameras for everyday walk round use.
  18. Although the Sony rx100 2 is my constant companion I have recently been using the m4/3 Panasonic gx85 and am considering the gx9 for the extra resolution. The 12-32 kit lens is simply crap but as you have Olympus lenses that should not be a problem. I currently use the Olympus 12mm f2, Panasonic Leica 12-60 and Panasonic 45-175 which have no problems passing QC. I do believe that the Sony 6000 series cameras would be slightly superior but they don't seem to have a good standard zoom lens. Hope this helps.
  19. I bought the RX100-VA last year after doing quite a bit of research. Apart from the much longer zoom, it seems the main difference between this and the later VI and VII is in video capabilities. My main reason for buying was to have a carry anywhere pocket camera for stills and I think I made the right decision at the time. Having said that, I have started doing a lot more video as the camera is quite amazing in that regard as well as being an excellent stills camera - not in the same league as a D800 series camera but amazing for its size and perfectly adequate for Alamy QC. See RX-100 versions comparison for a detailed and informed article on the differences between the different versions.
  20. Using the Twilight Scene setting. You're just an hour from Oxford by train or car, Chris. Check out charming Great Twe and the Cotswolds. If you have a car, you'll be Village Rich. And you have a car, right, Betty? I find what to shoot better in most any new place that I'm not familiar with. But NYC has almost 9 million people. Liverpool has less than one. Here's an interesting tech thing I discovered by having to shoot in low light. Some of you will recall my abandoned plan to test shooting jpegs instead of RAW with the RX100/6. In the past month I've been doing a lot of dusk and dark shooting and I've found that the Hand-held Twilight Scene setting, which shoots just jpegs, works very well. Phillipe (gone from Alamy now) was amazed by it
  21. Thanks, Harry. Ambassador? Maybe not, but I am a Sony mirrorless endorser. And regarding shooting in low light: I found the Handheld Twilight Scene setting very helpful, even though I have to settle for shooting jpegs. Look at some of my recent dusk snaps. STEVE: RX100/3 was the first one with a popup viewfinder, a feature I could not live without.
  22. In fact I see the MKVII at over £1000, a MK VI at £800 and this at under £300 https://www.amazon.co.uk/Sony-Advanced-1-0-Type-F1-8-4-9-DSC-RX100/dp/B008CNMZDW
  23. Steve, I use a Sony RX100/6 90% of the time now when shooting stock. You can click on the blue number to observe the results. I also have a Sony a6000. I've sold all my Nikons. Harry, put your hand through the wrist strap and you won't drop it. And I have shaky hands. I used the popup viewfinder most of the time.
  24. Whilst it's true that more MP is not necessarily better, technology keeps advancing. The Sony RX100 does a really good job with 2.4um pixel pitch on a 20MP 1" sensor. It uses a back illuminated CMOS sensor to ensure more photons reach the photo-sites. Micro-lens arrays also can play a part (I don't know if Sony RX100 also uses this). But it also depends on how far you want to push the ISO setting. In single shot mode I don't tend to venture above ISO 400 on my Sony RX100 Mk3, but it does have some clever multi-exposure tricks it can use in low light. Mark
